FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Granite Introduces ‘Built-to-Order’ Managed SD-WAN Solution at SD-WAN EXPO East 2020
Managed Services Provider Reveals Telecom Industry’s Secret: SD-WAN is Not ‘One Size Fits All’
QUINCY, Mass., and FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. – February 12, 2020 – Granite Telecommunications, a $1.5 billion provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies, introduced its “Built-to-Order” SD-WAN Solution at SD-WAN Expo, held this week along with ITEXPO at Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
“Most people know that SD-WAN’s a game-changer, giving businesses redundancy and quality of service using widely available and low-cost broadband,” said Mark Palmer, Sr Director of Client Development at Granite. “What they might not know – and what vendors and providers don’t want to tell them – is SD-WAN isn’t one size fits all.
“The truth is there are a range of solutions on the market that meet a range of needs. Rarely are they matched up correctly. In fact, many companies need more than one solution!”
That’s a challenge for SD-WAN providers that have only one product. At Granite, it’s business as usual – helping IT solutions providers and businesses find an SD-WAN solution that fits.
Granite’s “Built to Order” SD-WAN Solution leverages a wide array of appliances to match a customer’s requirements for performance, security and price based on their applications, connectivity, fault tolerance and budget.
“Customer requirements can vary by location, requiring a hybrid SD-WAN deployment that leverages multiple solutions,” said Palmer.
After white-glove installation, Granite, monitors and manages every SD-WAN deployment from its 24/7/365 U.S.-based network operations center (NOC) to ensure that everything works as promised.
Granite’s “Built to Order” SD-WAN Solution is available nationwide from our network of authorized sales partners or by calling 877.884.5200.
